    Ok I candled an egg last night and it was growing and moving the veins were all well formed the temp last night was 100 and humidity 50 when I got up this morning the temp was 102 and 45% so I candled it again there was no moving and it was really dark I’m using a flashlight so not sure if its bright enough but I could see something in there last night I also candled my turkey eggs in the same Bator and there all fine but can the veins dry up overnight and can the baby die that fast? Please somebody help i dont want to lose any more chicks

    I think you should be fine. Just like when the momma does it she gets off the eggs and then back on, the temp and humidity changes. I wouldnt worry to much 102 is still a acceptable temp and some people do a dry hatch until lockdown.
